†I doubt were going to see any Hurricane Sandy damage that looks better then this....
††


Well, for those of you who don't know, Sandy didn't just kick the hell out of New York and New Jersey...I know that's all the news talked about, but 500 miles away from the eye of the storm, Cleveland Ohio was getting it's ass pounded with rain that had started last Friday, and Monday the high winds kicked in...500 miles away and we were getting 50-75 mph winds...And the rain didn't stop until Thursday...Trees up-rooted all over...power lines down everywhere...My neighbors roof is fucked...The address numbers ripped off my house...Shit got real...There are still people in Northeast Ohio without power...My phone and Internet was down for 3 days...Holy shit I was losing my mind...2 blocks away the electric company, and phone company, and cable companies were working non-stop for 3 days...They had to replace 6 poles...Yeah, I know we didn't take the devastation that New Jersey and parts of New York did, but I felt people needed to understand just how big and strong this storm was...

And because of Sandy, Halloween was pushed back...My neighborhood moved it back to Sunday...So we waited until Saturday to get pumpkins...Good prices...The kids drew their ideas, and I carved them up...I did pretty good...


And here is the family, all ready to go...Our traditional pic with Frankenstein...


And of course, we had the trick or treaters...We had a number of drop offs this year...Those are the fuckers from another neighborhood, who get dropped off to cut in on the loot...Then we had the shit head parents with a bag, saying they had a sick kid at home...BULLSHIT....Fucking teenagers in no costume...Not even trying...They get nothing from me! Then I had some dolt pulling a real little kid in a wagon...The kid was asleep...If your kid is asleep in a wagon at 6:30PM, you shouldn't be trick or treating...Fuckers make me crazy...Luckily, I ran out of candy just after 7...I had to dip into snack bags of Goldfish to finish off the rush...Little Beeze got back, and passed out some of his own candy, but by 7:15 or so, the whole street was turning off their lights...So I called it too...

-You want to talk College Football...Checkout the WRAP_UP first...

Plenty of people disrespecting Notre Dame because they had to get lucky, and go to 3 OT's to beat Pitt...Yet, when Alabama was struggling to beat LSU, and looking like shit, the announcers said, "great teams, championship teams, have to have games like this." Wait, so it's okay for Alabama to struggle, and get lucky, (Les Miles screwed it up) but Notre Dame isn't allowed to...I'm sick of the double standard that gets thrown at ND...I'm sick of the free pass SEC schools get...I'm sick of SEC fans ignoring the fact that, at least half of their conference fucking sucks!

The latest BCS rankings have 'Bama 1...Kansas State 2...Oregon 3...and ND 4...I have no problem with ND being 4...They are most likely the weakest team...But in my eyes, K-State is #1...They have proven it week in and week out, and without a doubt have played the toughest schedule so far...I would probably Oregon #2, just because their offense is so powerful...Their D has a lot of questions, but if they got into a shootout with 'Bama, the Ducks win...

-If you have Browns kicker Phil Dawson on your fantasy team, Sunday wasn't too bad for you, since Dawson kicked 5 field goals...Trent Richardson rushed for 105 yards...And Brandon Weeden threw 2 picks, (should have been 3, Reed dropped one) and looked like crap, as the Browns lost 25-15 to the Ravens...What a sorry game this was to watch...

- I've been keeping an eye on the Seattle Seahawks, ever since that game against the Packers, that everyone says the refs stole...Even though the Seahawks played a hell of a game...Today, the tough Seattle D gave up 182 yards to Adrian Peterson, and the Seahawks still managed to beat the Vikings 30-20...While I'm confident San Fran will take the NFC West, this Seattle team may cause some problems...

-Now, Tuesday is Election Day...I'm not going to get into all the political crap that has gone on...I'm not going to sit here and point out the lies, and try to swing your decision a different way...If you need me to do that, you have bigger problems...And screw undecided voters...Those are just uniformed/lazy dolts....But I am going to pimp one person running for public office...

JIM_WARD for Wisconsin State Senate...I'm in Ohio, so I can't vote for Jim...But any of you readers in Wisconsin, you gotta get behind my pal...I grew up with Jim...Went to Grade School together...He's no politician...He's a History teacher, who is sick of the same old political BS...

This was written recently about Jim, after a candidate forum...

"1. I'm mostly a Republican voter however Jim Ward was way more impressive than Lazich. In fact, for being in office for 8 years, she did not sound knowledgeable at all. I think it is time to elect people for their qualities rather than the party!

2. It does seem that Ward has a better grasp in the issues."

Seriously Wisconsin, Tuesday, Jim Ward is your guy!

That's it folks...Have a week...

SRV, Take us out...

Happy Halloween Gabbers! Itís gonna be a damned cold and windy one here and lord only knows what kind of celebration folks out East will be able to have between the flooding and wind damage and the snow over in the Appalachians. Mother Nature proved she can be pretty damn scary this week. Hell, she brought down the HMS Bounty this week. Made as a prop for promoting the film of Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando, the ship has recently been restored and was used in The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and sailed to various festivals during the summer. The ship went down in the midst of Hurricane Sandy and took a female crew member and the 63 year old captain with her.
You know what else is scary? The idea of moving Halloween. Itís being considered in my hometown of Warren, MI. Now, I can see doing this in places that were directly affected by the hurricane, but weíre a good ways off from the disaster zone. Granted, the weather has been better. Weíve gotten a taste of the wind and rains, but trying to move the whole damn holiday to Friday is a bit much. Our genius mayor thinks this is a good idea as tomorrow is still calling for wind and light rain. To hell with that! I went through far worse to get candy as a kid! The year I got to dress up as a Tigerís ball player, I had to hide most of my costume under my Starter jacket. It sucked because I had a mock batting helmet, jersey, and everything. Of course, I was still out WALKING in the wind and rain to get my treats. Most kids donít walk anymore. Mom and dad drive them from house to house, meanwhile whatever the hell neighborhood they leave to come to mine has fewer and fewer houses giving out candy.
To hell with this new generation of trick-or-treaters! A lot of them are too damned old to be out in the first place. Most of them donít wear costumes. Hardly any of them know enough to say ďTrick-or-treatĒ much less ďThank youĒ. My light will be on tonight. I will have candy in a bowl, the good stuff, chocolates. I will have all my decorations ready to roll. Theyíve been out enduring the wind and rain. If you want candy, get your pampered self out of the car (and not in my damn driveway that is for MY car), wander up to the door (I might pass candy from inside if it is that crappy), and knock on the door and ask. Halloween is on the 31st. Donít expect me to go along with any bull shit moving of the holiday.
You know what else is scary? Some of ESPN rumor mongering about the NBA. Why does ti scare me? I just think that with David Stern gone the NBA will finally stop trying to show how damned rigged it is. LeBron is up in free agency in 2014. Stern is gone. Kobe may be on the way out in LA. LA will need a new draw. LeBron fits the bill. Now, all these Heat fans are crying that LeBron would never leave them. Heís got D-Wade. Heís got a family. Really? You remember Cleveland? Hell, Lebron will not only leave Miami given the chance, but heíll host a damned two hour special about it live on ESPN. Does anyone really think this guy has loyalty to anything but himself? Can these fans be so naive?†
The NBA is the picture of self-fulfillment and greed. I just installed a picture of it on the Wikipedia page for greed (not really, but itís a great idea anyone with a membership or whatever the hell you need). There is no loyalty from the players to any franchise, fan base, or contract. The owners need to wise up to this and figure that if these guys want to use them as pawns, they need to get proactive and use the players. Orlando had a prime chance to limp Dwight Howardís gimp leg off for a few players and some draft picks. Would they have gotten fair value? No. But they had way better deals than what they got from LA and Philly. They got no one. Brooklyn at least offered the lesser of the Lopez brothers and Mr. Kardashian.
You know who got it right: the Thunder. They know they have three guys up for contracts. Each guy is going to want the maximum deal. They canít afford that. So, you take the less talented of that three, James Harden, and ship him off for an expiring contract and some draft picks. Harden, who people will claim was blindsided, gets a chance to be the man for the Rockets and the Thunder actually get something for a player. Fans canít be sentimental in the NBA. Fans that are tend to remind you of that guy who blubbered on about how wrestling is still real to him. The NBA has done all it can to build up the franchises it wants to see succeed. Itís a watered down league who is letting the players run it into the ground. Player loyalty has left in a big decision. Fan loyalty left just as fast, or at least it should.
I was also pretty scared by the Tigersí World Series slump. Now, all credit goes to the Giants first and foremost. The Giants had an amazing series and completely dominated in every facet of the game. Heck, the Giants intelligence and ability on the base paths even got everyone a free taco today. (I forgot to get mine, but I hope some of you got yours.) Still, the Tigers were on the threshold and just didnít show up. Iím not trying to bash the tigers either. They ended the season in the best way possible considering they looked out of it as of September. After the late September/October run they put together, itís very hard to be upset with this team. I had figured as had the team that not being idle during their wait for the Giants would help. Despite going up against the best their farm could offer, the Tigers bats werenít there and even JV, the rock of this team, was shaky.
You know whatís so damned stupid, itís scary? The labor negotiations between the NHL and the players. Look, you have a small, but loyal fan base that wants hockey. You start to lose more fans with every game you cancel. Youíre going to cancel the best thing youíve done in the last few years IMHO, the Mid-Winter Classic at the Big House, due to the idiocy of Bettman-Fehr. Youíre league only recently clawed back from the damage of 2004. Get something done and put something out there. You wonít survive another lost season.
Iím a bit scared that the Lions are wasting what should be a talented roster. Iím worried that the Roar Restored is shrinking back to a yelp of fright. On paper, the Lions have a great squad. In actuality, we have guys slumping at the worst possible time and players not living up to potential. Maybe some of our guys were just graded too high, but weíre looking eerily similar to the lovable losers who tried to claw back from 0-16 than the high powered offense that made it back to the playoffs last season. Iím afraid weíll be shut out of the playoffs this year.
Iím afraid for Cam Newton. Iíll admit I figured Newton would be a bust, but not many busts put up the numbers that Newton has. People have started comparing Newton to Vince Young. In my opinion, Young never got enough of a chance. Really, Youngís numbers donít bear out a terrible comparison. Young went a strong 8-8 his rookie year. Newton led a mostly young Carolina team to a 6-10 record last season. Still, Young came back to lead the titans to the playoffs in 2007 and 2008 with 10 and 13 win seasons each year. What came next was the strange part. Young battled injuries. Young came back in 2009 to have an 8-8 season, but struggled in 2010 eventually losing the job and maybe his mind.†
I think the pressure got to Young. This was a kid who came out of Texas on fire. Heíd beaten the highly lauded USC team starring Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart. He was called a Hall of Famer by ESPN the year he was drafted. He was under so much pressure to win and distanced himself from Bush and Leinart so quickly that he just came apart under the scrutiny. Weíve all seen it before. Weíll see it again. Last year, Newton played to silence his critics and took a lot of the strain himself. He had to some games since he had little help outside of a revitalized Steve Smith. This year, the magic isnít working. Newton canít do it himself, but heís still trying. I only fear this may lead to his undoing. I fear he might come apart under the criticisms. Iíd like to see Young reach out to Newton. I think heíd be a good mentor and maybe get Newton to take it slow and remember he has a team.
Well, thatís about all Iím scared of for this week. Well, outside of bears, but Colbert kinda helped with that. I hope all of you have some great times trick-or-treating. If you get kids without costumes, I suggest getting a big bowl of fast food condiments to hand out. I know I have a bunch saved up. I expect to see some costume picks from the parents. Thanks as always for reading and I leave you with your word of the week.
frankenstorm, noun
A Frankenstorm is a hurricane and winter storm hybrid, involving a "monster" combination of high winds, heavy rain, extreme tides and snow. A Frankenstorm carries with it a risk of fatalities, power outages and severe property damage.
Farewell! I leave you, and in you the last of humankind whom these eyes will ever behold. Farewell, Frankenstorm!

I've never really liked Halloween...I always thought it was a stupid holiday/tradition...I gave up on the whole trick or treating thing after 5th grade...Just seemed stupid...And like a waste of time, money, and effort...I guess I was born an old curmudgeon...

But I do like some of the costumes...


Yes, ladies get to wear whatever they want...And we don't mind...I mean, you never see a nurse look like this at the doctors office...


Halloween...Women's free pass to slut it up, and not have to take any shit for looking like a whore...


I could go on for days just posting pics of slutted up Halloween chicks, but shit, I've got a job and kids to worry about...So lets get on with this...First off, until my College Football WRAP_UP yesterday, I've pretty much avoided writing...I've just been uninterested...Hell, I barely went on Facebook and Twitter last week until Thursday...But Notre Dame beating Oklahoma Saturday got me going well....That along with the horrible injury to Marcus Lattimore...All that can be seen in the Wrap Up mentioned above...

I had fun bashing Rick Reilly after the ND win...I was giving it to him good, since he trashed ND this pre-season, all because his daddy was too stupid, and flunked out of Notre Dame...Reilly blocked me on twitter...What bitch...Fuck him, he's garbage...But I found it sad, that the ND win, and trashing Reilly was the highlight of my weekend....Seriously, this weekend just sucked for me...

My plans changed a couple times, and none of the things planned involved anything I wanted to do...I hate to complain, but it just sucked...First the Little Beeze and I were going to go camping with the Cub/Boy Scouts...But after the news broke a big story about years of covering up sexual abuse in the scouts, especially in Ohio, I started thinking differently...It didn't help their case that each week at the meetings, I look around at the adults in the room and think, 'these fuckers are weird...I'd never hang out with these creeps.'

Then the wife was talking about a girls night Saturday...Then a couple days later she informed me she would be taking the kids on that event...All her and the gals were taking the kids trick or treating in the one skirt's neighborhood...She said, "you'll have the night off!" I could deal with that...Just me and football...Then one of the gals said her dude was coming...So I got signed up too...Then she said, "Good, I can drink with the girls, and you can drive." Promises were made...Luckily I got us out of there in time to see the ND game...I had enough of these people, and enough of the sugared up mess of kids...I hustled us out of there, got home...Got the kids to bed...Football and promises...But she doesn't drink as well as she did in her youth...She was feeling to sick to keep those promises...So it was just me and football...

And then of course, it hasn't stopped raining for 3 days...And this is before we get our blast from stupid Hurricane Sandy....Oh, and snow is a possibility in the forecast this week too...Sunday, the kids and I were going to get pumpkins, and all that happy horse shit, but the weather killed that...I didn't watch the Browns...They won 7-6...Doesn't sound like I would have enjoyed watching it anyways...I've thrown in the towel on the Browns...I'm just not going to intentionally piss myself off anymore...Just not worth it...I actually didn't watch any NFL games...I just wasn't interested...

The Giants swept the Tigers in the World Series...I can't offer any insight, because I didn't watch any of it...But I did just see Bud Selig present the Trophy to the Giants...He sounded like s sleepy stroke patient...Christ this guy needs to go...And my God, FOX is just putting Erin Andrews on TV constantly...Earn that over-inflated contract money bitch!

And in case you care, the NHL has canceled any possible games for November...1. No shit...2. Most people don't care, because the NHL lost all the steam they had gained the last few years, just by announcing the lockout...Personally, I haven't missed the NHL yet...And I won't this year, because I'm pissed...I've enjoyed following college hockey even more then I have in the past...I'll be fine without you NHL!

That's it for me now...But look for me to post a very offensive Halloween treat soon...

Have a week...

The Beeze.†

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of Halloween...Although I do like that it has turned into more of a look like a slut day! I never liked it much as a kid, and even had a few of my younger years, where I just didn't go trick or treating...I tried to go along with the flow a few more times, but I just never bought into it...The begging for candy thing seemed dumb, especially since there was never any tricks...Other then some one smashing your pumpkins in the street hours later, there was no fucking tricks...It was bullshit...

But now I have kids, and of course they're into it, so I have to go with the flow...The flow being, setting up decorations, and carving pumpkins, and spending too much on costumes my kids will wear once...During all this, I start getting annoyed by it, and the pumpkin carving gets intense...I don't trust my kids with sharp shit, so I do the carving...We draw their ideas out and then I get to work...Little Beeze, artistic as hell loves to challenge me, and I dig back into my art major days and strive for perfection...This is where the wife gets annoyed with me! And baby Molly's pumpkin, well, I took a crack at carving her, all 6 teeth, big smile, wide eyes, and dimples...(I'll get picture uploaded tomorrow night)

I had to do something other than watch the Browns get smoked by the 49ers...WOW does that offense suck! It's like each wee they take another step backwards...I never thought I would want Eric Mangina's awful offense back!

-So I missed most of the NFL coverage, but I saw this, and I loved it...


All last week I heard dopes on ESPN talking about "Tebowing" The whole kneeling with the fist on the head...Well, it didn't take long for some one to stick right back to St. Tebow! The Lions Stephen Tulloch shoved it right in Tebow, and the world's faces...Some will bitch about it, but Tebow set himself up for it...If he's going to do it every time he makes a big play, he better expect it to get it back...This why I feel dopes like Tebow, no matter what their faith is, need to keep that shit at home...I don't drag my religion/church (The church of the Beeze) into the Fish House with me, and shove it people's faces...Knock it off St. Tebow, and learn how to throw!

-I worked a double Saturday, so I missed the Notre Dame game...I was glad to see they not only didn't struggle with Navy, but they rolled them...But it's too little too late...They needed to bring that shit against USC, Michigan, and USF...The Irish Hockey team took 2 games at Bowling Green this weekend...Sorry Frank!

-Did you see the end of the Wisconsin/Ohio State game...The Luckeyes let the Badgers back into the game later, and then gave up the lead...Then, I nearly choked on my Sullivan's Irish Red, and Turkey & rasher Melt, as Wisconsin gave up another Hail Mary touchdown...All the talent, hype, and love for Wisconsin, and these dopes get beat two weeks in a row, on a Hail Mary...Unreal!

-I just have one note on the World Series...Am I the only person bothered by the fact that MLB postponed game 6 for a possibility of rain...Rain that never really came...Which set up the Cardinals to have their "Ace" go in game 7 if they got there? It just seems fucking strange to me...

-So I wasn't around much last week...Lots of shit going on in Beezeland...And I was a single parent for a couple days while the Mrs. was in Philly for a funeral...I even had to break out the baby gates...Ms. Molly wasn't pleased...


So then she tried to charm her way into the kitchen...


How can you say no to that?

As for costumes...She's going as a bunny, but she's not hip on the ears...The oldest is going as a Witch...She says a good one, but she's been mouthy lately...9 going on 16...The Little Beeze is going as an Angry Bird...But the costume is big and bulky, so he's not going to wear it at school...For school he's going as a "Star Wars" classic...


All these years later, and Boba Fett is still the coolest, baddest, mother fucker in the galaxy...

Have a Week...

Later, The Beeze.
